Summary This thesis examined the influences on physical activity, sedentary behaviour and overweight and obesity among a sample of Chinese-Australian and Anglo-Australian adolescents. The results found no significant difference in rates of overweight and obesity; however, lower engagement in daily light-intensity physical activity and greater sedentary participation was revealed among Chinese-Australian adolescents.
